“Margaret the machine!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

absolutely fantastic experience! best experience of my life! everyone made me and my girlfriend extremely comfortable on our first ever dive! discover scuba diving! everything was explained to the highest possible detail and throughout the whole dive their number one focus was our safety and enjoyment! We were explained about all the kit and how it works! Also we were talked through everything we were going to do in the water before hand! was very nervous walking down the the water but the Discover scuba diving leader made me and my girlfriend at ease! once under the water they were always checking that everything was ok and that we were comfortable! We enjoyed it so much that it inspired us to go back and do the follow up dive! which was also explained in very very high detail! Myself or my girlfriend could not think of one fault with this company! I would encourage anyone to go through this company before considering anywhere else as they make you feel like one of them! Many thanks!

“Impressed!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Having not been to Lanzarote before, we had done a lot of internet research on dive centers before booking the holiday. There were a few that stood out online but we spent the first day of our hol checking out the centers in person.

Manta was the first place we went to (was nearest to our hotel) and I think we knew almost instantly that that was who we would dive with! We were greeted by Rachael who was so friendly and helpful, she instantly made us feel at home. We discussed dives, quals, insurance and price, so we could make our decision. We went to several other dive centers but went back to Manta and booked up. We filled in all the proper paperwork, and they did ask about our quals/inc/medical so safety was definately well adhered too.

Owners Rachael and Ben were such lovely people. They made sure we had everything we needed for diving and well as being great company. Ben and Oli were our dive guides, and they were thoroughly nice too!! Dives were always explained well before leaving so we knew what to expect and look out for.

The dive center was quite small but had everything you could need. We had taken our own kit and there was plenty space to store this. Mantas hire dive kit looked really well looked after and in good condition. The beach was just a short walk away from the dive center, and it was nice to chat to the other divers whilst on the way down to kit up.

The diving itself was brilliant. We were suprised at just how many fish there was to see, and they came in so shallow too. My favourite was the seahorses :-) Absolutely incredible creatures and something I have not seen before. We did six dives, and if we had not been on a budget would probably have done a few more.

My husband and I would recommend this dive center to everyone, infact we plan to go back ourselves!

“HAPPY RETURNING CUSTOMER!!!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ben and Rachel were fantastic as usual. My wife did her first try dive ever and she really enjoyed it!. My son had a great time, he is 11 and really enjoyed it again (i have a previous review, he was 9 on his first try dive).I had a great time and the pictures are fantastic!. We had planned to do a padi course, but due to having another small child with us plus the hot temperatures, we were forced to leave until out next visit :( . Playa chica is a great spot, you will see loads of fish in all shapes and colours!. Very safe, very reassuring , staff will answer alll your questions, even before you travel, you can email/message them and they'll reply straight away!. Manta diving, we will go back next year to do our padi course!, thanks for the lovely pictures! and Hi from Galway, Ireland.

“Best Dive Centre Ever!!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

What an experience!! Having dabbled in 6m diving two years ago I wanted to try 12 metres. Ben, Rachel and the gang were superb. I took my son and godson on a 6 metre dive and had no concerns over their safety. They were coached brilliantly and supervised responsibly. Followed this up with a 12 metre dive with the owner Ben and myself. Saw octopus and loads of sealife all captured on photograph and presented to us on a disc. Would have no hesitation in recommending Manta Diving to anybody interested in trying diving. Will be making this an annual event, and will be doing my PADI next year. Look forward to seeing you all again.
